This specification defines the requirements for manufacture of materials, quality assurance application, testing, packaging, marking, workmanship and storage of blast furnace slag cement intended for the renovation of water mains, where the lime rich cement lining acts as a corrosion inhibitor for the iron water mains.
The document has not been reviewed for its continued currency since publication.

The Standards Board concluded at its September 2023 meeting that this document should be archived.
